94 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): "The 2007 Barolo Margheria is superb. The vintage has smoothed out some of the more angular contours this wine tends to show when young, while not overpowering what remains a structured expression of Nebbiolo. Sweet dark cherries, tar, smoke, flowers, licorice and saline notes wrap around a radiant, energetic finish supported by plenty of grip. This is a fabulous wine from Giampaolo Pira. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022. (Oct 2011)"

93 points James Suckling: "Fascinating aromas of nectarines and dark fruits follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and lots of ripe fruit. Chewy tannins. Lots of wood too. Coffee character on the finish. It will come together wonderfully with bottle age. Try it in 2015. (7/12/11)"

92 points Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar): "(aged in large oak barrels): Good dark red. Brooding, high-pitched aromas of blackberry, violet and menthol. Silky-sweet and rich on entry, then impressively intense in the middle, with penetrating dark fruit flavors offering excellent precision. Finishes very long and silky, with substantial ripe tannins and lovely lingering perfume. Seems sweeter and suaver than some past vintages of this wine. (Oct/Nov 2011)"

92 points and 'Cellar Selection,' Wine Enthusiast: "Don’t even think of drinking this wine sooner than ten years from now. Those tight, nervous tannins need time to slowly unwind and the wine presents beautiful aromas of cassis and red cherry that will evolve with aging. At the back of it all are steady tones of spicy tobacco and leather. (Sep 2011)"
